Starr's "Guide to the John Muir Trail" lists just about all of the lateral trails connecting with the JMT, both east and west, and includes mileage and altitudes along the way. It also is a pretty good guide to the JMT itself.

I have starr's guide and I feel that it just gives a path and not an exact destination out. I was wondering if there was a resource that just listed the 21 exits?

I remember seeing a list online of actual locations and paths and where they lead in order to get out of JMT. Does anyone know if this exists?

Elizabeth Wenk's book seems to have a nice description of the intersecting trails.
